Coleus Forskohlii is a perennial plant native to India and historically used in Ayurvedic herbal medicine . Ayurveda is a branch of medicine originating from India that focuses on oral ingestion of herbs and other supplements for optimal health, similar to Traditional Chinese Medicine. The term Ayurveda is derived from 'Ayus' (life) and 'Ved' (knowledge)which refers to the accumulated knowledge and practice of improving human life. Forskolin has been extracted from the root of the Coleus forskohlii plant and is thought to act directly on Adenylate Cyclase, which is an enzyme that may activate Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate (cyclic AMP) . Cyclic AMP may participate in the breakdown of stored fats in animal fat cells .
